  Eurovision Song Contest - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual competition held between active member countries of the European Broadcasting Union, in which participating countries each submit a song to be performed on live television; then proceed to cast votes for the other countries' songs, in order to find the most popular song in the competition.
Countries may select their songs by any means they wish, whether it be an internal decision made by the participating broadcaster, or a public contest which allows the country's public to televote between several songs.
Due to the fact that the songs are playing to such a diverse international audience with diverse musical tastes, and that countries want to be able to appeal to as many people as possible to gain votes, the majority of the songs historically have been middle-of-the-road pop.

 Derek Gatherer: Comparison of Eurovision Song Contest Simulation with Actual Results Reveals Shifting Patterns of ...
The voting patterns in the Eurovision Song Contest have attracted attention from various researchers, spawning a small cross-disciplinary field of what might be called 'eurovisiopsephology' incorporating insights from politics, sociology and computer science.
The pioneering study of the contest was carried out by Yair (1995) who used multidimensional social network analysis of the voting over the period 1975-1992, representing the period between the end of the Oil Crisis and the signing of the Treaty of Maastricht.
The contest now operates successfully on two levels, appealing equally to western post-modernists who revel in the very tastelessness and contempt for "serious" pop music that appalled the previous intellectual generation, and also to emerging states rediscovering the pan-European spirit of the contest's founders.

At this year’s Eurovision there were even accusations of an anti-Western bias with the big four, France, Spain, the UK and Germany all filling the last four positions of the scoreboard.
I thought Eurovision would be a great way to garner a bit of European recognition, and with Sir Banks and Sir Wag at my side I thought we would gain the support of the BBC and automatic entry.

Though Eurovision might be relatively unknown to Americans, others will recognize its impact through the songs and singers it unleashes upon the world.
The contest was broadcast for the first time in Russian and Eastern Bloc countries in 1965, but it wasn't until the fall of the Iron Curtain that Eastern European countries competed in any numbers: Latvia, Romania, Russia, Hungary, and Estonia all entered the 1994 competition.
